“Andy Irons: Kissed by God is a celebration, even when it makes you cry. This film is therapy for us all. Told by those who knew him best, it truthfully and lovingly commits to film the mighty legend and terrible tragedy of one of the greatest surfers ever. Lyndie’s love lights up the screen. Bruce’s truth is Oscar-worthy, and the very sight of Axel Irons paddling out is enough to break your heart.” (We said that in our review of the film.)
Which means, yes. Yes you should see it. It’s premiering across the country on May 31st.
But first, the kind folks over at Teton Gravity were nice enough to send over some outtakes, which we’ll share below. First up: a never-before-seen interview with Kelly Slater.
